The Wet-In-Wet Watercolor Technique: Mastering The Basics To Paint Exotic Fish
Step 15: Signing Off
When there’s nothing left to fix or add to your painting, feel free to finish off with one last touch – your signature. Bill uses a tiny round brush (Winsor & Newton University Series no. 233) for this, and mixes Peacock Blue with the opaque white gouache before carefully signing in the bottom right corner. You get one shot at this, so make sure you have enough space! Bill also advises using a paintbrush as opposed to a pen or marker, as this will disrupt the continuity of the painting, plus the ink will fade long before the watercolor paint does. When you’re done, let the paint dry, gently take off the artist’s tape, and voila! You’ve just completed an entire painting using only the wet-on-dry and the wet-in-wet watercolor techniques, so give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.
